My favorite line: “’Bout time, Lazy-gut. ‘Ere!” The Dwarf tossed him a scrap of meat, which Scaldo gulped down faster than Túrin gained names.
It made me giggle my head off. I had been meaning to read more of this but my little elfling keeps stealing my computer away from me. I do love this story. I'm so curious to know what a dwarf wants with a hobbit :D
Author's Response: Heh, by the time I wrote that chapter I didn’t know what the Dwarf was up to either. I have the same problem trying to get computer time from my brothers – it is only reason I bless their x-box: frees the computer up! *coughs, trying to be modest* I like that line too; I was trying to come up with something not trite, you know, Middle-earthish, and Turin came to mind. Please take you’re time reading. I love reading your comments! : )
Hehe. This is a very funny ending to the story - I hope you continue writing and I hope you've had a happy new year! Well, this is good, as like your other stories, and I wish you luck in your writing - again, lol. Well done!
Author's Response: And happy New Year to you – and may the plot bunnies be particularly vicious in ’09! I don’t know about you, but my resolution this year is to write More and Better… Oh, we’ll see how long I’ll remember it. : ) Yeah, as much as I enjoyed writing Scaldo and Dwarf, it's quite different from my norm. Thanks for sharing your thoughts! -Kitt
Yes, my friend really was as dumb as a box of rocks. He even said so. I always admired his honesty.
No I really do love it. It has the making of a great children's story. And my first bread making expedition ended in me catching my mit on fire.
Author's Response: Ah, I always love an honest fellow. They're too rare! I've almost caught a mitt on fire too... I noticed it smoking just in time. And once I caught a napkin on fire on the toaster in trying to use it as a mitt for my poptart. Oh sigh, I wasn't the brightest child. It's relieving you think this is children's story-ish. I wrote it for my little brothers and based the style somewhat on The Hobbit. *shrugs* Telling my brothers absurd stories is my favorite pass-time. : )
I'm really enjoying Scaldo's adventure and looking forward to future installments.
Author's Response: I’m happy it’s still amusing! There’s two more chapters to go. I do have an idea for the sequel, though. Writing it is the problem. : ) -Kitt
Lololol: like soup left on a warm stove, leaving only unpleasant globs.
I really enjoyed this. It made me giggle because I had a friend at college, fat and dumb as rocks. Scaldo reminded me of him But seriously, keep writing. This is a really cute story :)
Author's Response: You like it? Really? I started writing it "way" back when I was 14 and only just last year I decided to finish I have to admit my writing was jerkier than now. But I was proud of it. My first complete-and-posted fanfic. Ah, surely your friend couldn't be quite as dumb as Scaldo. I was afraid readers would think me morbid for striking his father with a manure cart. Glad it’s amusing. *slightly sadistic grin* Thanks so much for reading! -Kitt ; )
Lol! This story caught my attention as soon as I saw he wanted to do nothing but eat for the rest of his dars.
One of favorite lines: his father was struck by a runaway manure cart (I swear things like that happen to me all the time.)
ROFLMAO: What this story is about is how Scaldo got off his fat bottom (Excellent :)
Well, I've yet to fathom the Dwarf's motives, but at least the story is moving along well.
Author's Response: Thank you for your words. Yeah, well, it took another two chapters for me to fathom his motives myself. : )
Well, this is certainly an interesting adventure story. I look forward to the next installment.
Author's Response: Interesting, I s’pose, if not the silliest thing I ever wrote; but hey, though it may not be too obvious there is a plot amidst the adventuring! Thanks for reading. -Kitt
